Saying Goodbye Yet Again

Traveling, like all things, has its perks and its negative aspects.  One of our favourite things about traveling is meeting the fantastic people that cross our path.  But that means that one of the downsides to traveling is the friends and family we seldom see.

It’s good to RECONNECT.  But then we have to say SEE YA LATER again.Collage friends

The Schwartz family lived across the street from us in Sooke.  We met up with them @ Bramberton.

Christine and I’ve been friends for about 20 yrs. She used to cut my hair, now she’s just written a nursing exam so maybe she can take care of me in my older years!

My nephew Emerson came out from Montreal, and he and his dad stopped in to visit on their way back from Tofino.

 

Collage O'sLayne came up island one more time and we all went over to the Ortweins for a final visit.  When we first met the O’s, we had 2 children and they had 1.  Since then we’ve gone thru 14 pregnancies (and a few miscarriages) all together and ended up raising 15 kids who virtually know no life without the other family.

Lisa Ortwein treated me to a hydropath and I treated her to decadent desserts at the Kingfisher Resort.

Beth and Kaitlin were homeschoolers we met volunteering at Hamilton’s Hobby Farm.  Originally from the UK, Beth has embraced the outdoorsy life of beautiful British Columbia and blows the ‘uppity English air’ to kingdom come.  Love this beautiful woman!!

Final See You Later with the Yaremcio's as they move to Salt Spring Island and we hit the road.   It was a great summer getting to know them better.
